The Greater Manchester Cohesion Summit - Thursday 11th July 2019

About this event

In July 2018, the Mayor of Greater Manchester Launched ‘A Shared Future’, a report resulting from the Social Cohesion commission set up in the aftermath of the terror attacks on the city of Manchester in May 2017. The report pledged to host an annual summit - this year will see our first event on Thursday 11th July from 8.30am-4pm at Audacious Church, Trinity Way, Salford.

The event will bring political leaders, policy makers, practitioners and members from across civil society together to -
